She was fully vaccinated when she tested positive on February 20, and the palace had described her symptoms as mild.
At the time of her positive diagnosis, a spokesman announced at the time, "Buckingham Palace confirms that The Queen has today tested positive for Covid. Her Majesty is experiencing mild cold-like symptoms but expects to continue light duties at Windsor over the coming week."
"She will continue to receive medical attention and will follow all the appropriate guidelines," the statement concluded.
The monarch’s positive status came after reports that her son Prince Charles and his wife Camilla had also tested positive for the virus. She had been in contact with Charles two days before he had received his diagnosis. Both the Prince of Wales and his wife were triple vaccinated.
Queen Elizabeth also reportedly felt well enough to spend time with her great-grandchildren over the weekend. On Sunday, the monarch had met up with Prince William and Kate Middleton and their three children at Frogmore house.
Princess Beatrice and her newborn daughter Sienna were also in attendance.
The Queen's fast recovery comes just in time for her Platinum Jubilee celebration in June when the nation will come together to mark her historic milestone of 70 years on the throne.
